Last Saturday night, we had a great time singing our butts off in Loudspeaker Karaoke with our friends! However, that is another story for another post. Smiley

We sang a bunch of songs, including my choice of song - “The Reason” by Hoobastank.



I have always loved this song since I first heard it because I can relate to it. I think almost anyone can. The chorus is something that will stick in my head for days, thanks to vocalist Douglas Robb’s clear and engaging voice, Chris Hesse’s great beat on the drums, and Dan Estrin’s rocking guitar! Smiley



I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with every day
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That's why I need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

And the reason is you
And the reason is you
And the reason is you

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you
